I have deployed a Termitrap and the termites are feeding nicely.
I installed the second Tuckerbag 2 days a go.
I stopped using Pest Control people years ago, when the guy I was using (who was very good) went back to NZ.
Dealing with people who had no idea what they were doing and thought a pest inspection was a 10 minute job, after which they filled out a form denying all responsibility for everything and asking for $200 was a sad joke. This forced me to do my own research on termites. Problem is I would have to have a Termite Controller licence to get an appropriate Termiticide.
Needless to say I was chuffed to find your web-site after I discovered termites in the garden shed (15 feet from the house). Upon reading the info on your web-site it was all familiar to me, and seeing your system is in line with my own experience and research.
I considered it worth the money to try out the system. I will let you know how it went when I discover that the Termites have ceased activity, and I now have a supply of Termitraps to locate them in the future, and Termiticide to knock them off.

Thanks for the advice.
The baits worked brilliantly.
My mother had twice called in the poison termite experts.
However, the white ants came back within weeks and more damage occurred.
I’ll be honest I had considerable doubts your system would work.
It seemed counter logic leaving the white ants to carry on eating undisturbed for weeks.
It took almost two months until no more bait was being taken, but there were no extra damage- white ants focussed on the bait. I re-filled the bait bags four times before they stopped.
I have now repaired the damage and checked out the rest of the roof – not one white ant in sight – a great relief for my mother.
If you would like a reference I’d be happy to write one,
Just thought i would send a quick reply to this email to say yes please, keep me on your mailing list! Its been great to get regular updates and watch your business grow over the years.
About 7 or 8 ish years ago we had a big termite infestation in the pergola, they had done alot of damage to 2 posts and a few bearers, and were moving close to the roof of the house (all without us noticing!). Thats how we found you!
We bought a pack of plant pot type traps and some detection towers filled with cardboard to spread around the garden.
We taped the pots all over the posts, and within a nervous couple of months all the termites were gone.
I replaced all the damaged timbers and the termites never came back.
We are in a new house now out on a rural block, so you email is probably a timely reminder to start setting up some defences.
I’ll be in touch soon

Just writing to update you on my situation. After the call from Ion Staunton I followed his advice and did not disturb the trap for a month and also put another trap close by. On checking the trap at the start of October with the weather having warmed up I noticed a substantial increase in activity and some of the bait appeared to have been taken. Subsequently I have been checking the trap weekly and now there has been no activity for the last month, so it would appear that the termite problem has been solved. The other trap placed nearby never attracted any termites so I assume it must have been a small nest.
Many thanks to Ion for taking the trouble to contact me to educate me and discuss the options available to successfully eradicate the termites. Termite Trap certainly has a great service and deserves all the accolades it gets. David Mcintosh
Amazingly just as Ion predicted after about 9 or more weeks suddenly there were no more termites! We have had no problems since,. Many thanks to Ion ! so glad we were able to achieve great results without using highly toxic chemicals…Awesome!
Kind regards, Jess Cowley-Martin Caparra
Any scepticism we had that this non poisonous product could be more effective than the unhealthy standard poison procedures, especially if you want to let your children play in the dirt around the house, has left our thoughts, just as every single house destroying termite has gone. Unbelievable. Many Thanks.
And if that wasn’t enough positives for the product, there are equally as many positives about the people and process behind the products, who support disadvantaged employment for the packaging and sending of the products to your door. AAA rating Johanna Byma
We gave particular attention to the exterior wall of one townhouse that had experienced termite attack and had it treated by conventional means. We placed 4 traps on the surface of a garden bed that runs down its length as per instructions. A visiting building inspector said they’d never work.
No activity was seen anywhere for some time until a couple of months back when this particular line of traps showed the blocking of the top hole. On inspection there were termites present and active in three of the traps. We applied the poison as specified and on inspection last week the baits have been consumed to a large degree and there is no sign of termites. We assume the colony has been destroyed.
Clearly the system works and has demonstrably succeeded for the townhouse in question where the conventional previous treatment had not prevented a re-infestation.
This has to be the most cost-effective termite protection system around. Gary Edgar
About June last year I bought your monitors and baits. I involved a grandson to help with monitoring etc He loved checking the traps every time he was over.
About 4 months later low and behold one of the monitors hole was closed over. I couldn’t believe it. I started to bait and after 6 tubs the little bastards decided they had had enough.
I’m still checking them every 3 weeks but no further action from them..
So I don’t know how to thank you enough but I have been spreading the gospel according to Ion with a few friends buying your products. I will continue with this venture. Thanks again.. Mick Quinn
We received our order rapidly with everything we needed to set up our termite surveillance system.
We had recently found and removed a termite infestation in our home and were keen to reduce the threat of other attacks. The system is easy to setup and monitor and we haven’t had any attacks on the monitoring stations yet.
We did find some internal signs of some termites just as we set up our system, and with some friendly, easy and comprehensive advice from Ion, we were able to bait the termites we had found, as well as inspect the area for other points of attack. We believe we have now successfully baited and killed this further attack with the bait included in the kit – with no evidence of any damage to the house. We now have much more piece of mind that we are proactively monitoring the perimeter of our house with the monitoring stations, and are confident of baiting any future infestations if and as they arise.
I came across information about your product and decided to give it a try. I installed termite traps around my property and confess to not inspecting them as often as I should. When I did, I discovered to my horror that quite a few were active.
The termites seemed to have a voracious appetite for the bait . In one instance I found their tracks in some discarded wood and pouched some of the growth inhibitor on top of it. It was eaten in a week!
I now can’t find a termite anywhere! They had been in my firewood and it was covered in their mud tracks but they have all disappeared. All the replenished traps are now inactive and have been for months. It is truly amazing. A short while ago I could have found them under nearly any piece of wood.
Congratulations on a great product! Kind regards and many thanks. Roger Fuller from NSW
Your information pack and your website made it seem easy to do the whole thing myself. But the reason I’m writing this is, when I phoned, you both took the time to explain in simple language the non-toxicity of the treatment and how to check and treat some of the big old gum trees near the buildings.
I really appreciate the quality and the simplicity of the Traps and bait and feel very confident and understand why you say… “Paying more money doesn’t kill termites any deader than dead”

Then two traps showed the mud signal just as in the website photos. I added a couple of doses of the treatment and that was it! We threw a party, recharged the Traps and they are again hard at work, waiting to see if there are any more colonies game to forage in our yard. Dave and Ann Graham Columbus Drive Hollywell Qld
I hadn’t been particularly comfortable with the previous treatment method and therefore this time I went looking for a more ecologically sound way of dealing with the termites. After searching extensively on the net I came across Termite Trap and liked what I read and decided to give it a go. I am very pleased with the result. Within weeks of setting traps they arrived in one trap. I then baited the trap (a very simple and safe process) and left it for two weeks before checking to see if the termites were still active in the trap. They were, so I added more bait and left it for another two weeks before checking it again. This time there was no activity in the trap so the objective of killing the nest has been achieved. I now check the traps once a quarter and so far there are no signs of any termite returns.
The lesson from our experiences with termites is that you need to be constantly vigilant. The risk with annual inspections is that by the time you discover the termites they will have done substantial damage that will be expensive to fix. Common sense tells you that constant monitoring has to be far more effective than once a year inspections and the Termite Trap system provides a cost effective way of having this through a system you are in control of.
My experience with the Termite Trap system is that it works and on that basis I have recommended it to others.

This is just a short note from a satisfied customer.
About three years ago I purchased a set of your traps and bait. I set the traps and had one hit.
Later I discovered termites in the back of my house at Wisemans Ferry NSW, so I applies the bait. The termites kept appearing and I kept adding bait as you directed. It took time and I was worried. The termites were quite selective only getting into cheap pine mostly. Then suddenly they dissapeared. I have replaced the damaged timber and find no trace of termites.
So a big thankyou for your system, it has been a real lifesaver. Robert Dunlop from NSW . . .
I did just as you told me and stuck the bait on the frame so the termites came out of the wood into it and I fed them every couple of weeks for about 7 weeks until there were no more left.
Also as you suggested, I tapped around and found hollow skirting boards in 2 places in the bedroom next to the bathroom and I put bait there too.
They stopped feeding in the bedroom at the same time as the bathroom and I just want to say thanks again for inventing such a simple product to use — that cost me less than 10% of what I was quoted by the local pest bloke. Len from NSW . . .
It took about 5 weeks for them to block up the hole in the top. What a simple idea to have that hole so i could look at it as I walked past.
Thinking back, I can’t believe I was so excited to find termites!
Anyway, I fed them in that first Trap straight away and a few days later another Trap showed the signal so I started that one too. About 6 weeks later they had all stopped feeding.
It’s now 6 months ago, and there are no termites anywhere in the mulch and as the termites are no longer eating the sleepers, I won’t have to replace them.
Thank you Ion. Nice to know some products do what they claim.

Waiting to do it all again — if theres another colony game to take me on!
Thanks for your products and your How-To Guide.

I’d really disturbed the termites by ripping out all the damaged timbers before I phoned you but I did as you said and put Traps around the area and hoped the nest would find them. It took 7 months and I’d given up.
But in November they gave me their what you called their “we’ve arrived ” signal and I’ve been baiting them for 5 weeks now.
Good on you… and thanks
Maurie, Adelaide SA Maurie from SA . . .
Well the termites found the pine and I found the termites when the hanging rail and all the clothes ended up on the floor! When I phoned, you told me what to do using your bait. I was a bit reluctant because I wanted them gone, NOW!
However I did as you said and the termites have finally gone.
Now I’ve put the Traps around the house in case there is another nest out there somewhere and I am going to follow your tips on inspecting the whole house every 6 months… just in case.
